Donald Trump Responds To Meryl Streep's Speech


Donald Trump is not surprised by Meryl Streep's comments at the Golden Globes.

During last night's awards show, Streep was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award, handed out by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for "outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment."

Members of the Rockettes famously voiced their unhappiness with being forced to perform at the event, while a member of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir quit rather than perform during the inauguration.

Trump doesn't think this is going to be a problem, though. He says,

So, sorry, people looking to find a dress (?) for the event. All the good ones are sold out.
